Go Hiking in Chautauqua
I loved going on a brief hike in Chautauqua. Be warned, if you are not used to the elevation you will run out of air quick, so be sure to bring water and a sweater/jacket because it is cool. It's nice to bring a lunch so that you can relax on one of the trails and continue...

Sushi Zanmai: Upper end sushi
I've been to many sushi joints over the world. Sushi Zanmai is on the higher end for quality and service. I came here with a couple of my friends as they recommended it.They have 4 private rooms for groups (rez recommended), otherwise dozens of tables for smaller groups.They...
Falafel King Restaurant: a break from the beer
Man does not live on beer alone and brewpub food can get a bit repetitive. D & I love middle eastern food so when we were strolling around Boulder the day after our Boulder brewpub excursion and knowing we'd be eating dinner at yet another brewpub in Denver that night, we...
Avery Brewing: crem de la crem
Avery Bewing is the big boy of Colorado craft beer. Though it was around (just barely) on my 1994 swing through the state, it was not well known until winning a gold medal that very autumn at the Great American Beer Festival. It's been all up since then and we can even get...
The Walnut Brewery: even dressed up, an old friend
The Walnut Brewery was not on the agenda of my return visit to Boulder in 2008. Though it must have been good enough in 1994 to prod me into buying one of their t-shirts, it did not look overly promising when I check out their website prior to returning. It looked to have...
Mountain Sun: not quite what I remembered
Mountain Sun was one of the brewpubs from my 1994 first visit to Colorado that I wanted to return to most. It ranked second after Wynkoop in Denver for that honor. I remember it being this incredibly cool place, with a big oval bar, great friendly bartenders and locals that...
hop, skip, jump
Growing up in Boston, I was used to being snapped at by bus drivers if I dared ask a question. Boulder is the complete opposite.The drivers are not only friendly, but informative. I had very little idea where I was going and the drivers always alerted me when I was at my...
Bike in Boulder!!!!
Boulder has an absolutely amazing collection of bike paths, lanes, etc. that allow you to go just about anywhere in Boulder safely and, efficiently. Just as importantly, you will discover as many Boulderites have, that biking is much more fun than driving a car and trying to...
getting around usually means driving
Boulder is located in north central Colorado. It is serviced by bus from Denver but getting around the area is probably done most easily in your own vehicle. The town itself is very bike friendly and mountain biking is very popular in the canyon surrounding town. Though it...

Mind the leash
There are almost as many dogs in Boulder as people. Be mindful that not all trails allow dogs, and even those that do may require a leash. Some trails allow off-leash dogs but they must have a voice-and-sight tag to be off-leash. Within the city limits, all dogs are required...
We don't have many mosquitos, but the ones we have appear to be extremely good hosts for this viral infection. Make sure to wear insect repellent if you are going to be near water, or out in the evening or early morning. Mosquitos start in late summer and last until the...
We've had a lot of mountain lion activity in Boulder this year. They follow the deer down into town and then attack pets that are left outside. So far this year, one cat and one pet goat have met their demise. The Division of Wildlife says the whole west side of town is...
Sunglasses a must
Colorado brags of 300 sunny days per year. In addition, the high altitude and low humidity means relatively little protection from ultraviolet rays. Bring sunglasses that protect against UV, and don't forget the sunscreen.
Sunscreen, mosquito repellent
The mountains are...
Drive A Little Outside Boulder
Theres a great town called Lyons about 10 minutes from Boulder. There's a cute little downtown, plus you can go tubing down the river. If you eat there, please go to Oskar Blues. One of my favorites places. It's a great halfway point between Boulder and Estes Park. Keep in...
Pamper yourself at this amazing getaway
On our last trip to Boulder in February we were so stressed from work, school, and the frigid Boston weather we decided to spend a day pampering ourselves at a resort spa about an hour from Boulder, up in the mountains. It was a great decision! The Gold Lake Resort is no...
Climb the Flatirons
Climbing is one of the main reasons that Boulder is ranked as “America’s Number One Sports Town” by Outside Magazine. The Flatirons at Chautauqua Park have some of the best climbing in Colorado. The Third Flatirons is world famous.
don't drink the water, drink the beer
Boulder is a very cool town. If you like the great outdoors and an alternative flair, it's one place you might like to call home. One of its assets is great beer. Home to many small craft brewers, if you enjoy good beer, you are bound to enjoy Boulder. One place to not miss...
